WASHINGTON - Online deals service LivingSocial said Friday that its website was hacked, and the personal data of more than 50 million customers may have been affected.

The company said customers' names, email addresses, dates of birth and encrypted passwords may have been compromised by the cyberattack. But it said the database that stores customer credit-card information was not accessed or affected.

The Washington, D.C-based company said it was working with law-enforcement officials to investigate the attack and was contacting customers in nearly all of the countries where it operates.


LivingSocial has a Tucson call center at 250 S. Williams Circle, where it consolidated its customer-service operations last year.
